Kia ora wh膩nau
welcome to 新香港六合彩开奖网

When your tamariki step through our gate, they become part of our wh膩nau 鈥 as we become part of yours.

Our early childhood centres are a home away from home, a place where every child is recognised, respected and included for who they are and who they want to become.

We know that to play is to grow. Using Te Wh膩riki early learning curriculum (our evidence-based, holistic learning programme), we encourage every child to reach their potential by giving them the best possible surroundings to experiment and discover the world they live in.

Through this approach, our tamariki develop a strong sense of self, belonging and identity. We help them begin to forge their own journey and prepare for what lies ahead as they continue to grow and develop 鈥 both through their education, and through meaningful connections with their community and natural environment.

The future of our tamariki includes all of us 鈥 because when they grow, we all grow together.

chance to grow and discover -

    Our daughter tried transitioning at the start of the year, and the friendly team were so supportive throughout our journey. She wasn't ready then, but nearly a month ago she asked to go to kindy. She was so excited to run in the gate and greet everyone. And the teachers were all just so supportive as usual and helpful and amazing. They remembered us and she slotted right in. She is ready now and she's thriving, telling me about her day, how much fun she's had and how much she likes going. I feel good sending her to kindy and leaving her for the day. I was very anxious about the whole process but honestly the staff have made me feel so at ease and they show my daughter all the caring and patience I do. There's a fantastic outdoor feel to the place, it feels like a kids wonderland when you first visit, with so much space and always different learning stations to feed her curious mind. I love that they have a nurse come in once a week if they need it, and just the whole process and support of this place is really great. If there's something going on at home they are helpful and understanding to the child, and I've seen the tears of some kids being cuddled away by teachers to laughter and giggles. I really recommend Selwyn Kindergarten to all wanting to try it out.

    Kihikihi Kindergarten has nurtured and guided two of my children through the past five years, preparing them for their school years. The staff and teachers are caring, loving, and committed to ensuring their tamariki have plenty of varying types of activities to keep their young minds engaged, both indoors and out. The children loved their time there and were incredibly sad to leave!

    Thank you to all the kaiako for the quality of learning and childcare we receive. Something that has always stayed with me is a quote I heard a few years ago that 'it takes a village to raise a child' and I feel that Tokoroa Early Learning Centre is 'our village'. My daughter has learnt so much and I appreciate the support and understanding from kaiako when she is going through a challenging time. Thank you all once again!

    My son Hezekiah has now been attending Laughton Kindergarten for about one year now. He is thriving and loving it. Laughton is such an amazing kindy, the staff are so kind and gentle and very attentive, not only to my son but to other children as well. I highly recommend Laughton as it has been the best learning for my son and he loves going there. Thanks to all the teachers who make the day enjoyable.

    Today my daughter, Piper-Jane, had her last day at Elstree Kindergarten, off to school she goes. Although her chapter there has come to end, her next chapter begins, and because of the beautiful staff that supported her along the way, she is well and truly ready for this. I am so thankful for all they done for Piper, you all have definitely touched our heart. I wish you all the best and maybe in the near future Piper鈥檚 little brother might continue his journey through Elstree. We will miss you all.

    My daughter was at Dinsdale Early Learning for a number of years. She grew confident in all aspects of her development, made great friends and loved the teachers. I liked the consistent teaching team, low staff turnover meant my daughter was able to form great relationships with all her teachers. Communication was always on point, I always knew when events were happening and always felt welcomed to join in. Teachers were always welcoming when entering the centre.聽Thanks to all the team that supported Maleah and helped her grow into the beautiful young girl she is today. Maleah started school with confidence, she was not hesitant at all to say goodbye to me on her first day at school and in her second week she has made some good friends and settled well. So thanks again!

    When we attended 新香港六合彩开奖网 Hazelmere's evening Matariki celebration, we were not prepared for the utter magic that kept on greeting us at each corner that we turned. As we passed through the gate from the drive, candles burning in the middle of mandala's made from natural objects, totally delighted us.聽 In the distance and within the kindy building, fairy lights beckoned us to move inside.聽 Excited children waving their light sticks and beaming parents being warmly greeted by staff increased the feeling of a special evening about to get even better.

    Ready for school she is...!! Cassie girl in her zone... It's been a big emotional day for my littlest of monkeys today as she farewelled her very well loved and adored kindergarten teachers and friends. These teachers are special ladies who have loved, watched and nurtured her as their own throughout her toddler years and who have played such a vital role in developing her and helping her grow into the school girl she is today. I will be forever grateful to the wonderful staff at 新香港六合彩开奖网 Hazelmere Kindergarten. You truly are the best of the best when it comes to doing your job and doing it well.

    My name is Julena Meroiti and my grandson attends your Owhata Kindergarten in Rotorua. I just want to say thank you for employing such fantastic people like Jenni, Leah, Tina, Denise, Jermayn, Moepera, and the relievers. (I hope I haven't forgotten anyone.) They are all really calm and welcoming and very good at their jobs. The children are well supervised and well stimulated. The kindy is always calm yet busy with little people who obviously feel secure to explore and play. And the space is always freshened up with new ideas and always clean. The play areas are so amazing and the children want for nothing! Thank you for such a fabulous team who provide a superb service where I am really happy to take my grandson. I feel secure myself that he's really well cared for as this is my third attempt at finding a place that makes me feel secure. So thank you very much.聽Whatever you are doing ... Keep doing it!

    To the Amazing Teachers at Golden Sands Early Childhood! Thank you for embracing my daughter鈥檚 obsession with Michael Jackson and continuing to develop her passion for the creative arts. 聽I am completely blown away by the extra lengths you have gone to ensure she has further experiences and happy moments based around 鈥淭HE KING OF POP鈥. When I got home yesterday, Isabelle couldn鈥檛 wait to tell me that her teacher had given her a special surprise. 聽My husband felt blessed after seeing Isabelle鈥檚 face light up and we both agreed that nothing is more satisfying than knowing our child is loved when not in our care! I really enjoyed reading about Isabelle鈥檚 experiences and seeing the photos that captured the moment. Your hard work is totally appreciated!

    My name is Jade Tawhiti and I am the Principal of Waitakaruru School. I recently attended a special lunch at my sons kindergarten in Ng膩tea. It was a BBQ lunch for kids and their wh膩nau to celebrate 鈥榝ull day Wednesdays鈥 or something like that. It was a very neat occasion and my wife and I enjoyed spending time with our son. What I was particularly impressed with was the use of Te Reo M膩ori at the centre. Our lunch was blessed by the teachers and children with a karakia, reo commands were used throughout and the whole centre had loads of reo signs etc on the walls. I am very impressed to see our early childhood centres embrace and value Reo M膩ori as part of our dual heritage as NZers. Well done to 新香港六合彩开奖网 Ng膩tea and all the staff. You are awesome.

    My kids have been attending 新香港六合彩开奖网 Mercury Bay in Whitianga since February and I just wanted to comment on how fabulous the staff have been in helping the kids settle in and enjoying their time there. I especially want to say a big thank you to Lorna who has been instrumental in making the kindergarten what it is today. She has got amazing vision and has transformed it into a place where kids love to play and feel comfortable and safe.
